Forward in Faith


CTU is delighted to share that we surpassed our $16 million goal for the Forward in Faith campaign!

Now more than ever, our parishes, our communities, our Church and our world need the kind of leaders who are educated and formed by the kind of institution that CTU continually strives to be. One that employs both ancient wisdom and bold imagination. One that speaks in ways the ever-changing world can understand while remaining faithful to the unchanging truth of Christ’s saving gospel.

With immense gratitude to all of our supporters who joined us in that spirit of bold faith, we are reimagining what theological study and a seminary education can offer men and women — religious and laity — while building on a half century of success. 

Campaign Impact

We are delighted to report that through the Forward in Faith campaign, we have established seven new scholarship funds, and greatly enhanced our ability to attract and retain the very best candidates locally, nationally and internationally, fortifying faith communities all over the world with missionary disciples.

We have provided increased professional development and research funds, completed the endowment of faculty chairs, and funded ongoing faculty compensation–all to allow academic leadership to flourish, and to ensure the development of the next generation of inspirational and mission-driven faculty.

Finally, we have developed the capacity to leverage rapidly emerging technological advances to enhance classroom and online engagement, and to expand the reach of our program offerings. We could not have anticipated how important innovation and technology investments would become to sustain our academic mission in the pandemic.

With the campaign support has come a burst of energy and a surge of creativity in every corner of our institution. Lives have been changed through the availability of scholarships. New programs have been launched while others have been enhanced and expanded.

Your Gifts.
The Church's Gain.

This campaign will fuel innovation in theological education and programing that is responsive to current needs of the Church, as well as emerging societal needs. Every gift to the campaign increases access to CTU for future faith leaders and every gift accelerates the impact we can have on our parishes, our communities, the Church and our world.


Next Generation Challenge

Engaging and inspiring the next generation of CTU community members is critical. With that keen awareness, an anonymous donor has made a significant challenge grant to motivate new friends and donors to support CTU’s mission.

Support the Campaign

Supporting CTU's Forward in Faith Campaign is one of the best investments you can make. Every gift, no matter what the size, helps to advance the school’s mission and vision to be a transformative force in the Church and our world for affirming human dignity and the sacredness of God's creation.

The Way Society

CTU is embracing this moment to build membership in The Way Society, our community of donors who have named CTU in their wills or other estate plans.

When it comes to theological formation
for the challenges of today’s world,
CTU is the light that all religious orders need.
